Control your acne-prone skin with these makeup tips!

If you have acne-prone skin like me, then you've probably spent a lot of money trying to find the right products that won't cause you to break out or completely disappear after two hours of wear.

According to NYC dermatologist Jessica Weiser, MD, it’s super important to use makeup with ingredients that won’t irritate your skin or better yet, find a product with ingredients that can actually fight acne issues.

Here's a cheat-sheet list of ingredients to look for when shopping for your next acne-fighting products:

  • Salicylic acid
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Sulfur

If these ingredients sound a bit scary don't worry, using these in my products helped me wake up "Like This" and not "Like That!" In fact, to save you some time, I went ahead and made a list of some of the best makeup products I've found in 2019 for my acne-prone skin.

  1. Primer: Lancome Prep and Matte Refreshing Mattifying Make-Up Primer | $35  |Why I love it: this primer is oil-free and I find my makeup always sits better when I put this on first.
  2. Foundation: Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF 15 (Oil-Free)| $47 | Why I love it: Unlike a lot of foundations I've tried this one literally never melts.
  3. Translucent Powder: Subtl Beauty Shine Control Powder | $12 | Why I love it: Great to keep this on hand for when my skin is feeling especially oily.
  4. Setting Spray: Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray | $33 | Why I love it: Locks everything in perfectly. I definitely notice a difference when I skip this step.

 The secret is out..
